We know how important it is to minimise waste and conserve resources –
that's why recycling has become an ever-more important part of our manufacturing process.
The PVC-U industry is highly regulated for its environmental standards, and at Swish Windows and Doors we take that responsibility very seriously. That’s why, whenever we can, we use recycled materials for our UPVC windows, doors and conservatories.
It’s a common misconception that old PVC-U windows can’t be recycled, and that they go into landfill as a result.
Thankfully this isn’t the case: modern recycling processes mean that older PVC-U units are now being turned into the next generation of home improvement products.
Old PVC-U windows and doors are “deconstructed”, cleaned, ground down, and separated from other materials such as metals, mortar and other plastics.
The resultant granules are turned into brand new extruded material, ready to make new units that are thermally efficient, highly secure and require little maintenance. Other materials are recycled as well. Many households are now replacing their single-glazed or older PVC-U windows and doors, and enhancing their homes with lightweight and economical units that are more efficient in terms of insulation and protection, and will help reduce domestic fuel bills.
What many householders don’t realise is that this can be done with a minimal impact on the environment and no landfill, thanks to the use of modern recycling technology.
At Swish Windows and Doors, we want to enhance the environment, not destroy it.
That’s why we use 100% recycled materials whenever and wherever we can.
